of the world are on the gaza strip for eight days. hamas rained rockets down on israel. the mullas shipped rockets to the sudan, sent them up into egypt before smuggling them in tunnels. israel responded by doing the only thing a responsible nation could do, it defended itself. now the united states needs to show there are consequences for attacking this sovereign nation, consequences for hamas and iran as well. we should have stricter enforcement of sanctions against iran. iran and hamas both need to be held accountable for these attacks. israel are the moral right and legal duty to defend itself from the barbarians, hamas. there is a cease-fire but only until hamas obtains more iranian missiles. hamas is the puppet and iran is the police departmentetteeer. the iranian regime need to go. the iranian people need to do away with the little guy in the desert, ahmadinejad. and that's the way it is. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the house will be in order. further requests for nute speeches? are there further requests for one-minute speeches? the gent

'm margaret brennan. there is no cease-fire as yet between israel and hamas militants in gaza, though diplomatic efforts are under way. here's the latest-- israel says it's launched nearly 200 airstrikes against more than 800 targets. gaza officials say today's strikes killed 12 people, including eight militants. all told, 42 palestinians and three israeli civilians have been killed in four days of fighting. allen pizzey is in tel aviv tonight. >> reporter: only hours after it was set up, this antimissile battery in tel aviv interpreted a long-range rocket aimed at the hate of israel's commercial capital. five such batteries, called iron dome, have been keploid and three more are being rushed into production. in an expansion of the air war against hamas, the israelis struck the office of the movement's prime minister overnight. attacks were also aimed at other parts of hamas' political struck the uincluding a building with where the cabinet meets. gaza is one of the most densely populated areas in the world and any escalation to nonmilitary targets carries the risk of increased civili
. around 200 strikes since midnight. overnight, we've watched israel pound some of hamas' most important buildings. and many are wondering whether this aerial campaign will soon become a ground invasion. this is life in gaza these days. a relentless stream of booms and whooshes, as israeli missiles land and militant rockets are launched. in israeli crosshairs overnight, hamas' seat of power, the government headquarters, blown up. another hamas building targeted from the sea. all reduced to rubble. in israel on friday, sirens in jerusalem, as the sacred city was targeted for the first time in more than 40 years. a rocket fell ten miles short. no one was hurt. two days in a row, residents of tel aviv, the commercial center, ran for cover, as sirens sounded. >> you know, life is continuing. we're not going to let hamas or other people in gaza to interrupt my way of life. >> reporter: 3 israelis and almost 40 palestinians have been killed in the past 4 days. around half of them, civilians. we saw the wounded rushed to gaza's biggest hospital. its intensive care unit filled with what doctors
and israel? >> no one knows for sure. but i think it will hold for a while. hamas got what they wanted, worldwide recognition. they have some restrictions removed from the blockade. they will be able to smuggle arms and hunitions -- munitions in as they have always done, despite the fact the egyptians are trying to do something about it. israeli defeated hamasalcy military capability, firing 1500 rockets and defeating 88% of those coming into population centers. so i think there is something there for erch. i think it will hold. the real winner is the iranian, as they are watching this unfold and influence in it. >> shannon: behind what is so much of what is happening there, general, thank you so much. >> good sigh you. >> shannon: fox news has confirmed that peter king will step down as the house homeland security committee. the republican representative has chaired that committee for 7 years. republicans have imposed a six-year limit for most committee chairs. king got a waiver and he is wrapping up list seventh year. it is not clear who will replace him in january of 2013. some spec

agreement between hamas and israel which may beer maybe not. maybe he did a great job. there are also arms being smuggled through egypt so maybe he got too much credit. >> he seized the day. his name is on top of all newspapers. here i am, i need to consolidate power this morning. >> charles krauthammer believes there is a connection between the praise that came from the united states and what president morsey has done now in egypt. >> i'm not surprised at all that the brotherhood is now essentially engaging in a cudahy that. the shamelessness and speed in which he did this the day after the agreement. i think the administration has to wonder whether the praise it gave which was fusive and excessive didn't give morsey the sense that he can can strike now because he has been elevated to a great world leader. he had to do the cease-fire because he needs the money and he wouldn't have had it otherwise. and also because egypt has never wanted to be dragged back into the palestine wars by the palestinians who want everybody to die on their behalf. >> he then went out and spoke to large crowds s
because israel is a one bomb count country. hi, clifford, what do you mean by a one bomb country? >> people don't realize how small israel is, it's smaller than djabouti and the muslim countries around it are 600 times its size with about 60 times the population. what's been said by iranian rulers, it would take actually one bomb, one bomb to wipe out the entire country and if they did that and israel rehe al yates, more than a billion muslims left, why not. >> i've heard that israel is the size of new jersey and carries so much weight in the world, but it's that small. so what do you make of in cease-fire? does this accomplish anything? >> the cease-fire does accomplish something. it was important for israel to get rid of the iranian supplied longer range missiles that hamas it. the m-75's, reach more than half the population, it could reach from gaza, tel aviv, jerusalem, some came pretty close to hitting those places and they had to get rid of those and by the way, should there be a conflict in the next few, six, eight months between israel and iran, it was important for israe
this could hurt the chance of ever reaching peace with israel. >> reporter: her concern is that the vote would rise tensions with israel president palestine is likely to get their way. they see this upgraded status with the united nations would be a significant step toward independent statehood. this is video from palestine tv of rallies ahead of the united nations vote. after their failed bid last year today they are trying a different approach. they are asking for nonmember swerver status like the vatican. >> for the world to start to rectify a grave historical injustice that the palestine ans have undergone beginning the creation of the state of israel in 1948. >> the un vote comes after a week of a cease fire. the president needs the vote to boost his own authority but the united states said any hope of restarting peace talks between israel and palestine would be set back. reporting live from washington dc. allison burns. >> all right. today the president invites romney for lunch at white house. during his victory speech election night he said he would reach out to romney. white h
that year coming up just a week later, israel invaded egypt. and they did it with the secret support of two major u.s. allies. france and england. it was a fight over control of the suez canal. the american president at that time, in 1956, was, of course, dwight eisenhower. republican. he was running for re-election against the democratic candidate that year, adlai stevenson. talk about an october surprise. that year it was eight days before election day. both candidates are forced to deal with an unexpected and genuine giant foreign policy crisis. >> on sunday the israeli government ordered total mobilization. on monday, their armed forces penetrated deeply into egypt and to the vicinity of the suez canal, nearly 100 miles away. and on tuesday, the british and french governments delivered a 12-hour ultimatum to israel and egypt, now followed up by armed attack against egypt. the united states was not consulted in any way about any phase of these actions. nor were we informed of them in advance. >> president eisenhower sounding kind of mad, right? the u.s. had not been informed about the at
today besides that. today the u.s. and israel got outvoted 138-9 on a vote to grant palestinians sort of junior nation status at the u.n. palestine is not officially a country so they're not officially a member of the u.n. they officially get to be observers of what happens at the u.n. this was a symbolic stamp of international approval for the political legitimacy of the palestinians. it may not have much practical impact, but politically speaking, it was the u.s. and israel that were desperately trying to have this vote today not happen. so that we would not to be shown to be so isolated in the world in terms of our country's perspective and the israeli perspective on this issue. the u.s. knew that the vote would look this lopsided which is why we did not want the vote to happen, but it happened anyway and it happened just like we knew it would. now what? also on your plate, after president obama took his big historic trip to burma this month, the first time a u.s. president has ever visited burma, the burmese government today attacked their own people using what is being described
